CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1883. 



MARt^ IS THE KULING PLANET THUS YEAR 
Thk Ykai: in fiKNF.RAi-. — Undtr this planet Ihe year 



is more dry than humid, ari-l though there be fiequeof 
rains, yet it will be very dry, 

Si'iuNG. — In general will be dry, rough and cold, with 
frost until the tirst of May ; hence the sheep should not 
be j'Ut on the grain and meadows, a^ they would do more 
injury than good. 

Si'MMKn. — Mars occasions, above all other planet?, a 
hot euuimer; and the heat of the Sua will be so great, 
(hat one can scarcely walk on the sand without shoe;^. 
The ni«;hi9 will be very warm and insuflferable. Rivers, 
springs and wells will be very low. 

Fall. — Will be more dry than humid, and grapes will 
yield much wine. Even if it does occasionally freeze in 
October, November will be warm throughout. There will 
be but little snow before the last of November. 

Winter. — Will be tolerably cold, dry, and changeable. 

Si*RiN<j Cflors — Barley sown in time on well manured 
laud will yield well ; but late sowing, on sand and heavy 
clay soil will produce little. All spring crops should be 



well- covered. There will be but little oats, yet verj 
good. Corn, buckwheat, rice, and tobacco will yiel-. 
well. Potatoes, cabbnge and turnips will be a mediun 
crop. Hay and aftermath will be light, therefore shee] 
should be kept oft' the meadows. 

Fall Crops. — Rye will yield well, hut, wheat will h> 
onl}' a medium crop. 

Fall Seeding. — As the wintei- will set iti late, earlj 
.'•owing will not be necessary. 

Fijt.iT. — Pears will be a better crop than apples 
Cherries and quinces will be very scarce. No acorn: 
and but few nuts. 

Graph CfLTirRE. — Grapes will be abundant, and thi 
wine good. 

Thunderstorms, Tempe.sts.— In this year there wil 
be but few storms and rain, but heavy thunder, 

Insects. — Snakes and grasshoppers will be very nu 
merous.

FEETWASHING. 



JOHK XIII, 2-1 7, 



2. And supper being ended, the devil having 
now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's 

on, to betray him ; 

3. Jesus knowing that tne Father had given 
all things into his hands, and that he was come 
from God, and went to God ; 

4. He riseth from supper, and laid aside his 
garments ; and took a towel, and girded himself. 



5. After that he poureth water into a basin, 
and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to 
wipe them with the towel wherewith he Avas gird- 
ed. . 

6. Then cometh he to Simon Peter : and 
Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my 
feet? 

7. Jesus answered and said unto him, what I 
do thou knowest not now ; but thou shalt know 
hereafter. 

8. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never 
wash my feet. Jesus answered him. If I wash 




thee not, thou hast no part with me. 

9. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my 
feet only, but also my hands and my head. 

10. Jesus saith to him. He that is washed 
needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean 
every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. 

11. For he knew who should betray him; 
therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. 

12. So after he had washed their feet, and 
had taken his garments, and was set down again, 
he said inito them, Know ye what I have done 
to vou ? 



13. Ye call me Master and Lord ; and ye say 
well ; for so I am. 

14. If I then, your Lord and Master, have 
washed your feet ; ye also ought to wash one 
another's feet. 

15. For I have given you an example, that ye 
should do as I have done to you. 

16. Verily, verily, I say unto you, 'I'he ser- 
vant is not greater than his lord ; neither he that 
is sent greater than he that sent him. 

17. If ye know these things, happy are ye if 
vou do them.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC, 



[1883 




THE FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Of all the things in the shape of books and 
pamphlets or printed matter we do not suppose 
that there is any one thing so universally con- 
sulted as the Family Almanac. We would like 
to except the Bible, but fear we could not with- 
out doing violence to the truth. It, long ago, 
was voted one of the household necessities^ and 
no family would think of getting along without 
one. At first thought, we may laugh at the idea 
of putting so much store on the Almanac, but 
try to do without one, or some of its parts, for a 
few weeks or a month, and we will be astonished 
to learn how much business and time arranging 
is connected with i^ It is true^ the sun and 
moon and stars would perform their revolutions 
just as well without our knowing the exact times 
of their risings, settings, and changings, but it 
often seems important that we know when ttie 
moon is ''old" and "new", and when that mys- 
terious thing called "sign" points up and down. 
But practically, much of our business is arranged 
by the Almanac, and should we get our "day 
calendars" confused our letters, notes, &c , 
would all be dated wrong, and our Sundays 
would all get mixed up. Then, whoever thought 
ot going on a journey without first consulting the 
Almanac ! Thanksgiving day, with all the oth- 
er hollidays are set by this "everybody's friend". 
Our systemized church appointments are all 
placed just where the calendar puts them, and 
before arrangirg to hold a series of meetings or 
a communion meeting, we must know when the | 
moon is full, and how could we know this with- , 
out the Almanac? Some farmers and rural i 
housewives frequently make it answer for both | 
their diary and their account book, so that by \ 
the time the year is ended the margin of each j 
page is well filled with dates, time of payments 
made, and many other important events that 
occur during the year. 

There are still others who could not cut tim- 
ber, plow, sow, nor even plant without an Al- 
manac as, say they, much depends on the "sign" 
in which all these things are done. The exact 
amount of influence the moon exerts over such 
things, our knowledge of the science of Astron- 
omy doth not say, but while we are not careful 



about these things, we shall not interfere with 
the liberties of those who do. 

Since the Almanac is such an important factor 
in the world's welfare it behoeves us to do our 
best to put out a good one, for as diversified as 
are their uses, so their kinds and forms. Every 
patent medicine man who wishes to array his 
nostrums before the public must issue an annual 
Almanac, and generally finds it a safe invest- 
ment, as in this way they can introduce their 
advertisements to families that could not be 
reached in any other way. Truly, the Almanac 
has gotten to be a great institution and has been 
made a very efficient auxiliary in introducing to 
the world such information, as those who make 
use of such means, think it ought to know. 

Since then, it must be admitted that the Al- 
manac is almost a universal household necessity 
it is important that on its pages should be borne, 
such matter as will be appropriate and beneficial 
to every christian home. In preparing matter 
for the Brethren's Almanac, we ever try to keep 
this thought in view, and only insert such mat- 
ter as we think to be of use and instructive to 
its patrons. 



HARD TO BE A CHRISTIAN. 



Hard to be a Christian. Ot course it is. But, 
whether you believe it or not, it is a great deal 
harder not to be one. That is to say, you have 
a harder time than if you were one You have 
at least as many cares and trials as if you were 
a Christian, and as many temptations. Every 
sad and trying element of human life is mani- 
fested in your experience as often and as signal 
ly as it would be if you were one of Christ's 
followers ; you thrust yourself inevitably upon 
many sharp points of evil habits which you 
might in that case escape ; and you lack what a 
true Christian — however feeble and nnperfect 
his success as yet may be — always possesses, the 
consciousness that his Creator and he are no 
longer working at cross purposes ; that he is in 
harmony with God's will and plan for him ; that 
omniscence, omnipotence and infinite love are 
occupied in shaping his circumstances so that, 
however painful that may be to-day, they are 
sure to prove full of blessing in the end. You 
may not think this consciousness a very solid 
advantage, but if you had it, in the sense that 
the Christians had it, you would. 



Flesh is but the glass which holds the dust 
that measures all our time, which also shall be 
crumbled in dust.

[1883. 




THE OLD-FASHIONED PREACHER. 



In these da}^s of worldly progression there is 
a general dis})osition to get preachers to please 
the world rather than the church, and as a re- 
sult, the world is satisfied to remain where it is. 
Not long since a minister preached a very inter- 
esting sermon. After the services closed, inqui- 
ries were made as to how the sermon was re- 
ceived. Replies from various members of the 
church revealed the fact that the sermon had 
made a very favorable impression upon them. 
But, when some of the unconverted w re asked 
how they liked the sermon, they replied that the 
preacher was too ''old-fashioned." This reply 
caused one, who was particularly interested in 
the matter, to reflect upon the evident reason 
for the rendering of such a verdict. It was not 
long before the following reason was assigned : 
The preacher had faithfully asserted the deprav- 
ity of the human heart, and supported the asser- 
tion by Scriptural proof. He also endeavored 
to bring the minds of his hearers to the fact that 
the condition of the heart is fully open to the 
searching eyes of an omnipresent. God. 

In. proof of this the Word of God was freely 
cited. The speaker declared, furthermore, that 
there is to be a judgment day, in which all men 
will be judged. For this Scriptural testimony 
v/as also adduced. Evidently solemn impres- 
sions were produced upon the unconverted por- 
tion of the audience. Their minds were. made 
to view those truths which were not palatable to 
the unchanged heart. Hence, it was not sur- 
l)rising to know that the preacher was called 
''old-fashioned." Had he refrained from say- 
ing anything about human depravity and the 
fact that a Divine and holy eye always beholds 
it, and that a judgment day is coming iu'which 
men will be tried ; and, instead of these un- 
pleasant things, had sweetly spoken of the amia- 
ble qualities which maybe found in all clas.ses of 
l)ersons, and that God is not careful to observe 
the actual state of the heart, but is willing to 
reckon man at his own estimate of himself, and 
therefore thus be his own judge, without an ex- 
l)ress tribunal at a future judgment day— had the 
preacher only talked in some such sentimental 
way, there is no doubt but that the i)hrase "old- 



fashioned would not have been used against him. 
Unconverted i)eople like to hear compliments 
])aid to human nature. They want a gospel 
which is made up of sentiments which may be 
easily set to the music that delights the carnal 
ear. They want to be well spoken of, even 
though they know that the Bible does nothing 
to favor it. They relegate the gospel of Christ 
to the early ages, when the race was rude and 
ignorant. 

It is a new-fashioned gospel which such peo- 
ple want to hear. And he who will ignore the 
hard facts and truths of the Bible, which have 
their counterpart in the condition and experi- 
ence of the human heart, and preaches such fan- 
ciful sentiments as captivate the carnal heart, is 
the man who receives tha flattering compliments 
of the average, unconverted person. But breth- 
ren in the ministry, we cannot afford to betray 
the high trust which our blaster has committed 
to our faithful keeping. He has given only one 
gospel to sinners, and that is always new. It 
will never become "old-fashioned." As well 
speak of an old-fashioned Christ. The very 
thought is blasphemous. Let us stand true to its 
teachings, even though sinners dread their proc- 



lamation. 
prea<-hers. 



and 



deride 



us as "old-fashioned 



COMPASSION. 



In Christ's life this is seen. Jesus said, "I 
have compassion on the multitude ; they have 
nothing to eat ; if sent away they will faint." 
Jesus had compassion on two blind men, and re- 
stored their eyes. Christ had compassion on the 
widow of Nain, and gave her back her son. 
Christ s])eaks of the Samaritan having compas- 
sion on the traveler. Parable of Prodigal Son : 
The father had compassion on the son. This is 
Christ's definition of compassion in his own life, 
in action and in parable ; a yearning over the 
distressed and suffering; not a mere sentiment, 
but a doing — a multiph'ing of loaves and fishes 
for the hungry ; the outstretched finger of heal- 
ing for the blind ; the word of life to the dead : 
the beast of burden ; binding the wound ; pour- 
ing the oil and wine : going to the inn ; watch- 
ing the sick and settling the bills ; compassion 
to the stranger ; running to meet, with clothes, 
food, and forgiveness for the repentent son. 
Christ's compassion is not a theory, a sentiment, 
a tear; but an act, a life. Not vapor built into 
( astles on the mountain -tO])S, but steam driving 
the locomotive, is the world's need. — -Riv O P 
Gifford.

WISE WORDS. 



Faith and hope cure more diseases than medi- 
cine. 

Hope is the brightest star in the firmament of 
youth. 

The reward of doing one duty is the power to 
perform another. 

The pleasure of doing good is the only one 
ihat never wears out. 

It is upon the smooth ice we slip, the rough- 
est path is safest. 

Next to love, sympathy is the divinest passion 
of the human heart. 

A noble part of every true life is to learn to 
undo what is wrong y done. 

The very nature of love is to find its joy in 
serving others, not for one's own benefit but 
for theirs. 

Pity is sworn servant unto love, and this be 
sure, wherever it begin to make the way, it lets 
the master in. 

Fear of punishment and hope of reward 
moves cowards and sycophants. Virtue is inde- 
pendent of either. 

The pleasantest things in the world are pleas- 
ant thoughts, and the greatest art in life is to 
have as many of them as possible. 

Behind the snowy loaf is the millwheel, be- 
hind the mill the wheat field, on the wheat field 
falls the sunlight, above the sun is God. 

Grief knits two hearts in closer bonds than 
happiness ever can ; and common sufferings are 
far stronger links than common joys. 

A good wife is like the ivy which beautifies 
the building to which it clings, twining its ten- 
drils more lovingly as time converts the ancient 
edifice into a ruin. 

Temptation is a fearful word. It indicates the 
beginning of a possible series of infinite evils. 
It is the ringing of an alarm bell, whose melan- 
choly sounds may reverberate through eternity. 

Home is not a name, nor a form nor a rout- 
ine. It is a spirit, a presence, a principle. Ma- 
terial and method will not and cannot make it. 
It must get its light and sweetness from those 
who inhabit it, from flowers and sunshine. 



BE INDEPENDENT. 



There is nothing in the wide world that se- 
cures success so completely as does perfect inde- 
pendence. People who are always waiting for 
help may wait a long time, ' as a general thing. 
A little assistance, a little influence, is not to be* 
had by asking ; but there is always something 
one can do himself. Do it, whatever it is, with 
a will. One thing leads to another. If a 
young lady, don't sit still and hope a rich man 
will marry you, while your aged father toils for 
your daily bread. Learn how to help yourself, 
and take care of yourself as much as possible. 
Rather be one who does things for others, than 
one who must have things done for you. Two 
hands, two feet, sight and strength — these ought 
to enable you to dispense with help while you 
are young and vigorous. Men who can defy ad- 
verse circumstances, and can earn a living in any 
quarter of the world in which they are dropped 
down ; who can roll up their sleeves, and set to 
work at almost anything that offers ; and who 
can even sew on their own buttons, and make 
themselves a cup of tea when deprived of the 
help of womankind, are the ones who are really 
independent. The most helpful women are the 
kindest and truest, and as for a man, never trust 
him in any capacity if he has not within him the 
true spirit of independence, without which nei- 
ther strength nor sweetness may be hoped for. 
In the battle of life there is but one way to suc- 
ceed — fight it out yourself. Give the helping 
hand when you may. Take it, if in some sore 
strait it is offered freely, but never ask for it. Be 
independent as far as man may be if you would 
honor yourself, or be honored by others, or be 
happy. 

AGUE CURE— INFALLIBLE. 



Take i lb. of Blackroot, or Creluers physic, 
medical name Lapfankrln. 

i^ lbs. of wildcherry bark, (the inner bark.) 
I ^ lbs. of quackenasp bark " '' "■ 
\Yn lbs. of prickly ash bark, off the root. 
Steep in i gallon of soft water for two hours, 
in an earthen vessel.; then strain off and simmer 
down to I quart. Add i}^ pints rum, brandy 
or rye whiskey when cool, to keep from souring, 
then bottle and cork. Dose, i tablespoonfuU 
one hour before breakfast ; i spoonful at noon, 
and I spoonful before going to bed. until a cure 
is effected, which will generally be in a few days. 
Increase or decrease the dose according to . the 
strength or constitution of the patient.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC 



[1883. 




THE NIMISHILLEN CHURCH. 



I send you the following list of names of breth 
ren and sisters of the Nimishillen congregation, 
of Starke county, Ohio, who took the meeting 
into their house or barn by regular turn, as their 
name stood on the list. A copy of the list is 
preserved by brother and sister David Hoover, 
of the Canton church, and is printed in German. 
This rotation of meetings was in effect for some 
years previous to 1825, when the Nimishillen 
congregation was divided, and the Canton 
church or congregation organized out of its ter- 
ritory. The list is as follows : 
.David Snyder, Conrad Brumbaugh, 

David Ebie, Williom Hoover, 

John Sheidler, Peter Ebie, 

Jacob Snyder, Martin TTouser, 

Joseph Schneider, Widow Thomas, 

George Swinehart, Andrew Christ, 

Daniel Brown, Jacob Funk, 

Michael Flory , W idow Leiser, 

John Hershey, David Bixler, 

John Thomas, Jacob Replogle, 

Jacob Bauer, John Garl, 

Daniel Markley, Daniel Bowser, 

Joseph Showalter, 

The membership of this congregation was then 
scattered over a large territory, but those who 
took the meeting living in widely different sec- 
tions brought the meeting by turn within the 
reach of all its members. But as it was some- 
times a long time before the meeting would come 
round, the people would frequently go a great 
ways on horseback or in heavy wagons, over 
new roads, and in consequence dinner and horse 
feed was always prepared for those who came to 
meeting, 

I send you this as a matter of history for your 
Almanac, thinking it will be read with interest 
by many of the descendents of those who did so 
much for the cause of Zion in the early settle- 
ment of this country. I had also intended to 
prepare a list of ministers who officiated previ- 
ous to 1825, but failed to get the dates of their 



order in time.

ADMISSIONS ABOUT BAPTISM. 



Here are nine affirmations and admissions of 
a vital character touching the question of bap- 
tism : 

I. That Christ commanded immersion. 

II. That his command could not be under- 
stood by the Apostles in any other way. 

III. That Christ himself was immersed in 
water. 

IV. That his Apostles really did understand 
his command to enjoin immersion, and that they 
obeyed it by immersing. 

V. That trine immersion was the practice of 
the whole church in primitive times. 

YI. That immersion continued the general 
practice in the Western (or Romish) Church a 
long time. 

VII. That it was finally supplanted by sprink- 
ling — a change which ought not to have been 
made. 

VIII. That Luther desired to restore immer- 
sion in baptism, but could not. 

IX. That his failure to restore it is to be re- 
gretted. 

It is natural to suppose that those who make 
these admissions and affirmations believe in im- 
mersion. The world over consistency would re- 
quire that they should. And yet these are the 
affirmatians of five great pedobaptist theologians, 
made in a standard work on theology. They 
are statements of Drs. Storr and Flatt, published 
without a word of dissent by Dr. Schmucker, 
aided by Moses b'tuart and Prof. Murdock. 
These are all men of the greatest eminence, re- 
nowned for learning and ability. They belong, 
it is true, to the last generation, but they have 
few peers among the men of to-day. And they 
affirm substantially that the Baptists are right, 
and sprinkling is, indeed, an innovation, and 
an unfortunate one. 

When after all these concessions, men will 
practice sprinkling ; when professed followers of 
Jesus will reject immersion after hearing such 
statements from the friends and advocates of 
sprinkling, it is evident that they are not guided 
by a clear apprehension of the truth, but by 
sentiment, feeling and regard for popular opin- 
ion. There is not a cause that ap])eals to the 
people for acceptance that is so completely given 
away by its friends. 



Eove thy neighbor as thyself. 



We can no more scold anyone into loving us 
than nature could make buds blossom by daily 
nipping them with frost.

ALMANA G 



[1883 



HOW TO PREACH. 



The following will do to read and study. 
It is printed for preachers : 

Make no apologies. If you have the Lord's 
message, deliver it ; if not, hold } our peace. 
Have short prefaces and introductions. Say 
your best things first, and stop before you get 
prosy. Do not spoil the appetite for dinner by 
too much thin soup. Leave self out of the pul- 
pit, and take Jesus in. Defend the gospel, and 
let the Lord defend you and your character. If 
you are' lied about, thank the devil for putting 
you On guard, and take care that the glory shall 
never come true. Let your beard grow. Throw 
away your cravat. If you do not want to break, 
make your shirt collar an inch larger, and give 
your blood a chance to flow back to the heart. 
Do not run away from your hearers. Engine 
driving wheels fly fast with no load, but when 
they draw anything they go slower. It takes a 
cold hammer to bend a hot iron. Heat up the 
people, but keep the hammer cool. 

Do not bawl nor scream Too much water 
stops mill-wheels, and too much noise drowns 
sense. Empty vessels ring the loudest. Pow- 
der isn't shot. Thunder isn't lightning. Light- 
ning kills. If you have lightning you can af- 
ford to thunder; but do not try to thunder out 
of an empty cloud. 

Do not scold the people. Do not abuse the 
faithful souls who come to meeting rainy days 
because of the others who do not come. Preach 
the best to smallest assemblies. Jesus preached 
to one woman at the well, and she got all Sama- 
ria out to hear him next time. Ventilate your 
meeting-room. Sleeping in church is due to 
bad air oftener than to bad manners. Do not 
repeat, saying, *'as I said before." If you said 
it before, say something else after Leave out 
words you cannot define. Stop yonr declama- 
tion and talk to folks. Come down from sacred 
tones; become a little child. Change the sub- 
ject if it goes hard. Do not tire yourself and 
everyone else out. Do not preach till the mid- 
dle of your sermon buries the beginning, and is 
buried by the end. Look people in the face, 
and live so that you are not afraid of them. 
Take long breaths, fill your lungs, and keep 



them full — stop to breathe before the air is ex- 
hausted. Then you will not finish off" each sen- 
tence-ah with a terrible gasp ah, as if you were 
dying for air-ah, as some preachers do-ah, and 
so strain their lungs-ah, an'J never find it out-ah. 
because their friends dare not tell them-ah, and 
so leave them to make sport for the Philistines- 
ah. Inflate your lungs. It is easier to run a 
mill with a full pond that an empty one. Be 
moderate at first. Hoist the gate a little way, 
when you are half through, raise a little more ; 
when nearly done, put on a full head of water. 
Aim at the mark. Hit it. Stop and see where 
the shot struck, and then fire another broadside. 
Pack your sermons. Make your words like bul- 
lets. A board hurts a man worse if it strikes 
him edgewise. 



FEAR OF POVERTY. 



How many seem to spend much of their lives 
in the fear of poverty ! They are constantly 
striving to lay up something ''against the time 
of need," and are full of anxiety lest losses and 
misfortune should deprive them of their hoard- 
ed treasures. But, alas ! how many seem to have 
no sort of fear of spiritual poverty, but are will- 
ing to spend their lives in a state of religious 
weakness, leanness, and 'starvation. The Lord 
has made provision that his people might have 
divine wealth, and that, though poor themselves, 
they make many rich with the durable riches of 
righteousness. And so to the ( hristian who 
wearies himself with seeking earthly gain, and 
whose heart is hungry, thirsty, burdened, and 
oppressed, Christ says, ''I counsel thee to buy 
of me gold tried in the fire that thou mayest be 
rich." Happy are they who heed the gracious 
invitation, and gain the wealth and blessing 
which the Lord alone can give. 



THE LORD'S PRAYER. 



How many millions and millions of times has 
that prayer been offered by Christians of all de- 
nominations ! So wide, indeed, is the sound 
thereof gone forth, that daily, and almost with- 
out intermission, from the ends of the earth, and 
afar off upon the sea, it is ascending to heaven 
like incense and a pure off"ering. IS or needs it 
the gift of prophecy to foretell that, though 
"heaven and earth shall pass away," these words 
of our blessed Lord ''shall not pass away," till 
every petition in it has been answered — till the 
kingdom of God shall come, and His will be 
done on earth as it is in heaven.

ALMANA C 



[1883. 



SENSATIONAL LITERATURE. 



Dear children, listen while I tell you some- 
thing which deeply concerns your welfare. The 
subject is the shape of your bodies. God knew 
the best shape. He created us upright, in his 
own image. None of the inferior animals walk 
upright. 

God fitted the great vital organs in your bod- 
ies to an erect spine. Do your shoulders ever 
stoop forward ? If they do, so do your lungs, 
heart, liver and stomach fall down out of their 
natural places. Of course they can't do their 
work well. To show you how this is, I will tell 
you that when you bend forward you can take 
only about half as much air into the lungs as 
you can when you stand up straight. As I have 
said, God has so arranged the great organ in 
the body that they can't do their duty well ex- 
cept when the body is straight. Oh, how it 
distresses me to see the dear children, whom I 
love so mnch, bending over their school desks, 
and walking with their head and shoulders 
drooping ! My dear children, if you would 
have a strong spine and vigorous lungs, heart, 
liver and stomach, you must, now while you 
are young, learn to walk erect. 

If a boy were about to leave this country for 
Japan, never to return, and were to come to me 
and ask for rules to preserve hs health, I 
should say, ''I am glad to see you, and will 
give you four rules, which carefully observed, 
will be pretty sure to preserve your health." He 
might say to me, " Four are a good many; I 
fear I may forget some of them ; give me one, 
the most important one, and I promise not to 
forget it." I should reply, ''Well, my dear 
boy, if I can give you but one, it is this : 

" Keep yourself straight — that is, sit up 
straight; walk up straight; and, when in bed, 
at night, don't put two or three pillows under 
your head, as though intent on watching your 
toes all night ;" and I believe that in this I 
should give the most important rule that can be 
given for the preservation of health and long 
life. 

My dear children, don't forget it. — Dio Leio 
is. 



When we look for a moment at the mass of 
fictitious reading that is flung out broadcast over 
the world, can we wonder that the young so 
early wander away in the paths of vice, or that 
the vile dens in our cities, that are seething in 
impurity, are peopled with wrecked manhood 
and fallen womanhood ? ^e look in astonish- 
ment at the evidences of blighted intellects, lost 
virtue, and ruined lives ; and yet how many of 
these learned their first lesson in vice at home, 
over the pages of some impure novel 1 In how 
many of our homes does the Bible lie, all cover- 
ed with dust from disuse, while dime novels are 
eagerly read by parents and children day after 
day ! And I have seen professed Christian par- 
ents remain away from the house of God, to 
read a weekly journal burdened with impure 
thoughts, to feed the imagination and the heart. 

Parents, you cannot keep your homes too 
pure. If the young heart is not educated to 
love purity, it will love sin and follow after it : 
and if you crowd your libraries with fiction, and 
pervert your own lives by its perusal, how can 
you expect to lead your children heavenward ? 

The young gain more education from novels 
to-day, than from the sciences. They pore over 
the unchaste pages, and shed fountains of tears 
over some luckless heroine that never lived, and 
whose counterpart never will live ; but they have 
no sympathy for the sorrows of a beggared wid- 
ow or orphan, and their hearts are unmoved at 
the sight of actual human suffering. 

Can it be that those to whom God has given 
ten talents, will waste them all in wrecking hu- 
manity ? Shall they be willing, for dollars and 
cents, to send young souls, reeling beneath a 
burden of shame, into penitentiaries, dance- 
houses and groggeries? Will it pay at the bar 

of God ? — Rural Neiv Yorker.

NAMES TAKEN FROM TRADES. 



The Baxters belong to the same class as the 
Masons, the Carpenters, the Taylors, the Smiths, 
the Gardiners and the Ful'ers In fact, the sur- 
names derived from trades or occupations are 
more numerous than those of any other class, 
except patronymics and place names. Some of 
them belong to existing trades, like those quoted 
above, while others represent obsolete trades, or 
at least obsolete trade terminology, like the 
Fletchers or arrow-makers, the Arblasters, who 
manufactured cross-bows or arblasts (arcubalis. 
tai), and the Tuckers, who worked in the tuck- 
ing mills, where cloth was prepared for market.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC 



[1883. 




Those who wish for further information upon 
these subjects cannot do better than turn to Mr. 
Bardsle)''s excellent and systematic work on 
English surnames. A man who bakes is called 
a Baker; but in earlier times a woman who baked 
was called a Bakester, or Baxter, ^o a man 
who brews is a Brewer while a woman who 
brews is a Brewster. In mediasval English the 
termination "ster ' was a feminine one ; audit 
still survives with its primitive signification in 
spinster. A huckster was originally a market 
woman, but the word has now come to mean 
anybody, male or female, who hawks about 
goods in the public streets. The same change 
has come over maltster, throwster, and. many 
other analogous words. But sundry surnames 
will show us the two forms side by side, as in 
Webber and Webster. Hence we may conclude 
that the ancestor of all the Baxters was a wo- 
man who kept a bakehouse. Why her descend- 
ents should take their name from her rather than 
from their father is easy enough to understand 
on a number of natural hypotheses. Joan Bax- 
ter may in one place have been a widow wo- 
man, whose children would, of course, be called 
after her ; in another place she might be a per- 
son of some character, while her husband was a 
field laborer or a ne'er-do-well, and in another, 
again, there might be two Piers Gardiners or 
two Wat Carters in the same village, so that it 
might be more convenient to describe the young- 
sters by their mother's calling than by their 
father's. — Cornhtll Magazine 

-♦-. 

THE POPULATION OF THE EARTH. 

In the new edition of Behm (Jv: Wagner's Be 
volkeriing der Erde the total population of the 
globe is estimated 1,433,887,500 It is only two 
years since the last issue of the work, and then 
the estimate was 1,455,923,500, showmg an ap- 
parent decrease in two years of almost 22,000,- 
000. This at first seems strange, especially as 
the recent censuses of all the great countries 
show an increase of 32,000,000 over the previ 
ous nuntbers. The apparent discrepancy is ac- 
counted for by the fact that the editors of the 
Bevolkcrung, on a careful revision of all the in- 
formation as to the population of China, have 



come to the conclusion that their former estimate 
was far too high, and that, instead of that vast 
Empire havmg a population of over 430,000,000, 
it does not much exceed 370.000,000, with all 
its dependent territories. There has thus been 
an actual increase of about 38,000,000 in the 
popu'ation of the globe — an increase, however, 
which must be spread over ten years, as many 
of the recent censuses are decennial For Eu- 
rope the present population is rated at 327,743,- 
400, showing an increase of about 12,000,000 
over the previous figures by the operation of 
the censuses. In Asia, making allowances for 
the readjustment ot the population of China, 
there has been an increase of 20,000,000, the 
present popu'ation being set down at 795,591,- 
000. Of this the Indian Empire claims about 
one-third, while all the vast territory of Russia 
in Asia supports a population of only about 14^' 
millions. The Central Asian possessions of Rus- 
sia have a population of only five millions. With 
regard to the Corea, whose inhabitants have 
been estimated at various figures from 7 to 16 
millions. Messrs. Behm & Wagner give 8}^ 
millions as probably near the truth. The popu- 
lation of Persia they have reduced, on the basis 
of recent information, from Zyi miUions to little 
more than 7^2 millions. — St Jajnes Gazette. 



FACTS FOR THE CURIOUS. 



Nineveh was fourteen miles long, eight miles 
wide, and forty-six miles around, with a wall 
100 feet high, and thick enough for three char- 
iots abreast. 

Babylon was fifty miles within its walls, which 
were seventy five feet thick and 100 feet high, 
with 100 brazen gates. 

The Temple of Diana at Ephesus was 420 feet 
tothe support of the roof— it was 100 years in 
building. 

The largest of the pyramids was 481 feet in 
height and 853 feet on the sides. The base 
covered eleven acres. The stones are about 60 
feet in length, and the layers are 208. It em- 
ployed 350,000 men in building. The labyrinth 
in Egypt contained 300 chambers and twelve 
halls. 

Thebes, in Egypt, presents ruins twenty-seven 

miles around, and contained 450.000 citizens 

and 400,000 slaves. 

j The Temple of Delphos was so rich in dona- 

I tions that it was plundered of $50,000,000, and 

I the Emperor Nero carried away from it 200 

statues. 

The walls of Rome were thirteen miles around.

LMANA C 



AT SET OF SUN. 



If we sit down at set of sun 

And count the things that we have done. 

And, counting, find 
One self-denying act, one word 
That eased the heart of him who heard ; 

One glance most kind 
That fell like sunshine where it went, 
Then v.-e may count the day well spent. 

But if through all the livelong day 
We've eased no heart by yea or nay ; 

If through it all 
We've done no thing that we can trace 
That brought the sunshine to a face ; 

No act, most small. 
That helped some soul and nothing cost, 
Then count that day as worse than lost. 

Ella Wheeler. 



OLD AND YOUNG. 



It is always sad to see the old and young dis- 
dissociated from each other, especially in home 
life. Sometimes parents and children have no 
common enjoyments, and meet only in a formal 
restricted way, even at the family board. The 
old take no interest in the young, and the young 
feel under restraint and are anxious to get away 
from the old. Even the pleasures enjoyed un- 
der the roof-tree are in separate apartments — 
those who are advanced in Hfe retiring to get 
away from the ''annoyances," and the young- 
sters counting it morally certain that there can 
be no fun until the old folks are in bed. Out- 
siders more equally mated in years are preferred 
as associates to those who may be bound togeth- 
er by the ties ©f flesh and blood, and the young 
especially often find their greatest enjoyments in 
houses of mere acquaintances, or in public halls, 
or on the streets. 

As a rule, this is demoralizing to the young. 
It is a sad thing when a growing girl feels im- 
pelled to turn away from her mother in seeking 
a confidant; or when a boy has no encourage- 
ment to talk freely to his father ; and this is all 
the worse when the subject that engrosses the 
young mind and heart is of such a nature that 
there is a disposition to hide it from the parent. 

But this dissociation adds to the desolations 
of age. Many a parent is lonely with his house 



[1883. 



full of children and childrens' children. It is 
said to be a sign of decay when a man loses in- 
terest in the present and lives only in the past. 
His friends are gone and he feeds on memories 
of earlier years, which are fresher to him than 
the thipgs of yesterday. Generations pass away 
as it were in blocks or sections, without being 
linked on to those who are comins: after them. 
The father divides his estate and creeps to his 
grave like old King Lear, disgusted with the 
world and disappointed in his children — perhaps 
because he was never near enough to them to 
understand them, and desolate must he be in- 
deed, unless his faith lays hold of something 
more satisfactory in the future. 

These difficulties would be largely obviated if 
homes were made more attractive, and the joys 
of old and young were put in nearer accord 
Especially should Christian joys enter into all 
the relations of home life. 



A STRANGE TRADITION. 



Among the Seminole Indians there is a strange 
tradition regarding the white man's origin and 
superiority. They say that when the Great 
Spirit made the earth He also made three men, 
all of whom were fair complexioned, and that 
after making them He led them to the margin 
of a small lake and bade them leap in and wash. 
One obeyed and came out purer and fairer ihan 
before ; the second hesitated a moment, during 
which time the water, agitated by the first, had 
become muddled, and when he bathed he came 
out copper colored ; the third did not leap in 
until the water became black with mud, and he 
came out dark in color. Then the Great Spirit 
laid before them three packages, and out of 
pity for his misfortune in color, gave the black 
man the first choice. He took hold of each of 
the packages, and having felt the weight, chose 
the heaviest ; the copper-colored man chose the 
next heaviest, leaving the white man the lightest. 
When the packages were opened the first was 
found to contain spades, hoes and all the im- 
plements of labor ; the second enwrapped hunt- 
ing, fishing and warlike aparatus ; the third gave 
the white man pens, ink and paper, the engine 
of the mind, the means of mutual mental im- 
provement, the foundation of the white man's 
superiority. 



The best recipe for going through life in a 
commendable way is to feel that everybody, no 
matter how rich or how poor, needs all the kind- 
ness they can get from others in the world.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF THE LIFE 

OF ELDER GEORGE PHILIP 

ROTHENBERGER. 



I have been requested to write a biographical 
sketch of my father, George Philip Rothenber- 
ger, who departed this life Oct. 30, 1881, in the 
80th year of his age. 

He was born at Partenheim, Hessen Darm- 
stadt, Germany, Aug. 1802. His parents were 
of the Lutheran faith and he was christened and 
confirmed in that church. His father died when 
he was twelve years old, and his mother after- 
ward married a man who proved to be a very 
■cruel step father, who mistreated his wife and 
her children in such a manner that my father 
left his home when only seventeen years of age, 
and traveled as a journeyman blacksmith over 
several countries of Europe, and at last arrived 
in Switzerland, where he married in 1826, and 
made his home in the Canton of Zurich Pie 
became a naturalized citizen of the above named 
place and became identified with the German 
Reformed Church, as there was no Lutheran 
Church there. The Church, however, was cor- 
rupt, as Church and State were united, and the 
ministers received their pay from the govern 
ment of the Canton Father saw the necessity 
of Uving a different life, and he and my mother 
joined a sect which was started by a man who 
was once a minister of the German Reformed 
Church. His name was Froehlich. They at 
first did not separate themselves entirely from 
the old Church, but continued to attend its 
meetings, and to have the children baptized as 
before. They, however, held meetings of their 
own also, and led altogether a different life. 
They were noted for their piety and had to en- 
dure severe persecution. They at last separa- 
ted themselves entirely from the established 
Church, and denounced infant baptism, oaths, 
military service, &c. They dressed plainly, and 
saluted each other with a kiss just as the Breth- 
ren do. All who had been baptized in infancy 
were required to be baptized again as believers. 
Their mode, however, was triune sprinkling. 
They were nicknamed Wiedertaufer, which 
means rebaptizers, because they rebaptized those 
who had been baptized in the established Church 



in their infancy. They called themselves ^^Glau- 
bige^^ which means believers. 

Father had become a noted minister among 
them. He began to advocate baptism by im- 
mersion, and was reproved by some other min- 
isters for doing so in a discourse which he preach- 
ed in 1838. He stated in that discourse that 
immersion was the only apostolic baptism. He, 
however, had never seen it practiced, and.did not 
know that it was practiced anywhere at that 
time. In the year A. D. 1839, Elder Henry 
Kurtz went to visit his father in the kingdom of 
Wurtenburg,, Germany. He also came into 
Switzerland. I recollect him distinctly. He 
came to father's about Easter. I first saw him 
at the house of my grandfather. He preached 
several times m that vicinity and baptized quite 
a number, my father being the first. Mr. Froe- 
lich heard of it and wrote quite a long letter to 
the church, in which he denounced brother 
Kurtz as a deceiver, and by a series of argu- 
ments succeeded in winning back quite a num- 
ber of those who had been immersed by brother 
Kurtz. Father, with a few others, remained 
fixed. He continued to hold meetings at our 
house, and at other places He was severely 
persecuted. Once he was nearly killed. He 
was actually left for dead not far from his own 
house. Bis beard was pulled out. Father and 
brother Kurtz kept up correspondence which 
resulted in our coming to the United States, 
where he labored among the brethren as a min- 
ister for forty years. He traveled very exten- 
sively and sold books among the brethren. Soon 
after coming to the United States he lost his sec- 
ond wife. She was buried on the farm of Eld. 
George Shively, in Starke county, Ohio. He 
was again married in 1842 to Mary Kleisly, who 
accompanied us to the United States. 

In 1845 father moved with his family to Car- 
roll county, Indiana, and in I851 to Kosciusco 
county where he died last October. His third 
wife died in October, 1871. He was married 
again in 1872. She survives him and is in her 
82nd year. He left two sons and two daughters 
and numerous grand-children. One of his sons, 
Daniel, is a minister. Father kept up his family 
worship. May we all follow in his footsteps. 
His desire for a long time was to depart and be 
with Christ. 

I should have stated that this minister, Mr. 
Froelich adopted immersion himself and organ- 
ized several churches, baptizing all the members 
by trine immersion.

MINISTERIAL LIST. 



On account of the unsettled condition of the church ?t 
this time, it was a question with us as to how we should 
arrange the list in regard to those who have separated 
themselves from us. Some thought we slvould drop all but 
those who are recognized as being loyal to the general 
brotherhood. As wa could not do this with the knowl- 
edge we had, and as we still hope that our difficulties may 
yet be amicably adjusted, we thought it best to retain the 
full list and mark those who have gone oft" to the " Old 
Order Brethren" with a star, thus "•'; and the " Progres- 
sives" with a dagger, thus f. We do not claim that our 
marking is strictly correct, but it is as nearly .so as could be 
made under existing circumstances.
